Muhammad Chowdhury Biography
Who is Muhammad Chowdhury?
A teenager was arrested for a brutal attack on an off-duty NYPD officer in the Bronx earlier this week, police said.
Oshawn Logan, 18, was charged with gang assault and robbery when he attacked Officer Muhammed Chowdhury on Tuesday after he was attacked by three men while jogging near his Castle Hill home, police and sources said.
Logan denies any wrongdoing as police escorted him from the 43rd Ward to Bronx Criminal Court.
“I didn’t do anything, stop talking to me,” he said twice.
Two other attackers remain wanted for violent crimes, which police say are part of 19 citywide robberies dating back to Aug. 1.
Choudhury, 48, a married father of three children, suffered a fractured skull and bleeding from the brain during the attack in which the suspects stole his phone, keys and wallet, according to his relatives and police.
Chaudhry was found lying on the sidewalk bleeding from his left ear when he was punched in the head as he jogged from his home in the Bronx on Monday morning.
He was found lying on the pavement, bleeding from his left ear, shot in the head and hospitalized in critical condition.
By Wednesday, Choudhury, a department veteran with the Central Park Police Department for 18 years, was awake and no longer intubated, but still unable to speak.
Chowdhury’s wife of 12 years, Nadira Sherin, had implored senior police officers and city leaders to quickly capture her husband’s attackers and not release them on bail.
Police are looking for two other suspects in the attack on Mohammad Chowdhury.
“You can’t let these people come out the same day they’re arrested,” Sherin told The Washington Post on Wednesday, referring to New York’s lax bail reform laws.
“Punish them,” she added. “It would be unfair to my husband if they were released on the same day.”
Sherin said that when Mayor Eric Adams and Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark visited Chowdhury at the hospital on Tuesday night, she sent them a similar message, telling them to “take [this case] seriously. “
